I found this bug on my screen that’s on my window. I didn’t want to have this bug roaming around my house before i knew what it was so i close the window and as soon as i did that it hiked up its front legs like a mantis. I saw on your page that it might be an assassin bug? So what is this creature and what does it do?

Hi G-Money,
Yes, this is an Assassin Bug.  It is difficult to tell from the angle, but we suspect it is in the genus Zelus.

    I’m leaning toward (and pretty sure) this is Zelus renardii, but there is a small possibility that it is Z. luridus.
